Famed (and incredible) comedien/actor/director Bob Odenkirk called me last week offering me the main guest-starring role in an upcoming HBO pilot starring David Cross (also a comedy genius). They had actually written the role with Jack Black in mind and apparently immediately thought of me (Bob had apparently watched me on Idol and thought I was funny - in our conversation he actually told me that he loved that I had a sense of irony about the show) to play the part of one of David's old friends.
Bob sent over the script and it was pretty darned funny...it is actually a great morality tale that is pointed and timeful. It's gonna be great. Unfortunately, we were supposed to film in May when I am on tour. We tried to figure out how to make it work, but unfortunately, it just couldn't work out (and just so there was no confusion - this was not an invitation to audition, this was an actual offer for a part - there's a difference, and I know the difference).
Anyway, I thought that was a very cool honor to have been offered the part...it would have been cool to film for a few days in L.A. I'm also really looking forward to seeing the show when it airs in the Fall.
